HathiTrust Research Center creates tools for researchers to analyze the text of content in the HathiTrust Digital Library. These tools make it easier for researchers to perform text analysis and many have easy to use interfaces.
A unrestricted dataset of metadata and word count for each page in the HathiTrust Digital Library.
The HathiTrust Bookworm allows for the searching of lexical trends millions of volumes in HathiTrust over time. Search by date, publication country, language, words per volume, number of words, or resource type to see how often words have been used.
HTRC Algorithms are web-based, click-and-run tools to perform computational text analysis on volumes in the HathiTrust Digital Library. The algorithms can help you explore, analyze, and visualize public worksets or those you have created.
A system of a secure computing environments for performing researcher-driven text analysis on the HathiTrust corpus. All users may access public domain items but access to items in copyright are restricted to member-affiliated researchers.
Experiment with HTRC in-development and beta tools. Some tools may eventually be integrated into HTRC's suite of tools, or they may be taken down. Some tools may require experience with programming.
HTRC worksets are of HathiTrust volumes to be treated as data and analyzed using HTRC tools and services. Worksets are curated by researchers, and they can be shared and cited to improve reproducibility.
What are collections?
HathiTrust Digital Library allows users to create lists or collections of items in the HathiTrust. These collections can be searched independently of the rest of the repository and are a great way to gather related resources together. Each collection can be kept private or made public so that other users can view them. HathiTrust has many different types of collections publicly available. Some featured collections could include Women Composers Collections, Records of the American Colonies, Islamic Manuscripts, and Ancestry and Genealogy.
